Do you love to sing?
Do you want to feel this good about your singing?
Well, Sing Joyfully! has been created for YOU!
Anastasia founded a new community choral group called Sing Joyfully! in 2015. The aims of the group remain the same today, as when it first started:
have FUN singing
ENJOY singing with other people
sing in a HEALTHY way
IMPROVE vocal technique and tone
enable both PERFORMERS and AUDIENCE to experience the JOY of singing
Whether you are an experienced choral singer, a complete beginner, or if you just want to try something new, Sing Joyfully! vocal ensemble is a friendly, welcoming community choir. If you want to have fun, meet lovely people, improve both your vocal sound and technique, boost your confidence and generally feel great, do come and join us.
We meet weekly, working towards concerts in December, late March and June. Warm ups are fun and we develop our voices and vocal technique in rehearsals. Our repertoire is wide and varied, from pop to classical and everything in between, often including arrangements specifically written for the ensemble.
Rehearsals are light hearted and we always start with fun warm ups to enable us to improve our singing technique, breath control and blend.
At Christmastime and during the Summer we sing in the Kirkby Lonsdale Arts and Music Festivals, giving concerts in the beautiful and ancient parish church of Saint Mary in the town centre. We often team up with our friends in Kirkby Lonsdale Singers for themed concerts, and our songs are selected from seasonal and world music, folk, a cappella, western classical, contemporary, popular genres and easy listening. Our Summer themed concerts have been particularly well received and have included Gospel and Jazz, Stage and Screen, The Best of British and even An Evening with James Bond.
Our aim is for performers and audience alike to have fun and experience the joy that music can bring.
We are based at the crossroads of Cumbria, Yorkshire and Lancashire, rehearsing weekly at St Mary's Parish Church in Kirkby Lonsdale on Wednesdays at 7pm.
During the lockdowns of the pandemic we met weekly on Zoom and we still enjoy workshops online from time to time, opening up our community to a wider group of singers.
